4th Saturdays – Spinal Rejuvenation
Healthy Low Back & Hips
This workshop will be led by LizziDee Levin, certified yoga therapist and is based in the therapeutic, alignment focused Iyengar Method. In it, we will identify postural habits and pelvic imbalances that can either cause or aggravate existing injury. Participants will learn how to perform yoga postures that correct posture and address common imbalances, reducing pain and preventing future injury.
This workshop is appropriate for students with a range of spinal conditions and injuries or for those simply experiencing occasional discomfort. No prior yoga experience is required.
During this Wall-focused workshop we will explore the full range of motion of the spine; flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation. The sequence combines inversion, distraction and rotation of the spine that, when done regularly, can take years off the age of the spine.
The particular order and repetition of the postures you will learn, progressively stimulates and strengthens core and postural muscles while distracting the spine, allowing blood and nutrients into this typically congested region. We will utilize The Great Yoga Wall to help maximize the experience.
Use it as a stand-alone practice or introduce it into your already existing yoga routine and gain lasting beneficial changes to your body and mind. Pre-registration required.

Healthy Neck & Shoulders
Yoga for Healthy Knees
We demand a lot of our knees, the most complex and largest of joints in the human body, and that wear and tear catches up with us. Knee pain is the second most common type of chronic pain and it can get in the way of our enjoyment of simple activities. In this workshop, we’ll explore alignment principles for keeping the knee safe in commonly practiced yoga poses, identify common poses that can aggravate the knee joint and explore how to make each pose safer, also determining when it’s better to practice a modification instead. In addition, we’ll explore how we can use yoga postures to safely stretch and strengthen the muscle groups that directly impact the knee when they’re overly tight or weak, creating better muscular balance.
